Join us on 10/21 to learn about programs and resources that promote financial wellness and stability
|Financial Wellness and the Workplace|
|You are invited to attend a forum on Financial Wellness and the Workplace sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and United Way of the Bay Area to learn about programs and resources that promote financial wellness and stability, primarily for low-wage workers. You will have an opportunity to hear about readily accessible programs that enable employees to pay down debt, access affordable credit and banking services, and find ways to save for their future.
Employers can have a significant and favorable impact on the financial wellness of employees by offering or connecting employees to suitable money management resources. A recent survey of HR managers showed that 84% of employees are concerned about finances, which can negatively impact their job performance. A 2009 report published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City cites several direct costs of employee financial problems including absenteeism, reduced productivity, wage garnishment and even theft. Across the country, employers are taking an active role in helping their employees find solutions to address financial crises. These are some of the topics that we will explore in this forum. Whether you are a large or small employer from the private, public and nonprofit sector, this is an issue that impacts you if it impacts your employees. These low cost and no cost programs will not only contribute to the financial wellness and stability of employees, but also reap benefits for your workplace. Please register today and join your peers to learn as well as share what you are doing to support financial wellness in the workplace.
